"The French poet Paul Valéry once spoke of “producing future”. I like to think that’s what brains are for: they are for producing future. You extract information from the past and use it to produce future, and the more future you can produce the more freedom you have."

Daniel Dennett, New Scientist interview, 24 May 2003, p 39/40, “Free will, but not as we know it”
